Did he say Tarpon?
Yup. Tampa has some of the best Tarpon fishing on the west coast of Florida. Hooking up with the Silver King from a kayak is an experience that should definitely be on your bucket list. When you hook up, the kayak community refers to what happens next as the "sleigh ride." Those that are inexperienced with kayak Tarpon fishing picture this to be being drug off for miles. The reality is, this is far from the truth. The kayak's stability and maneuverability allow the anger to maintain control during the battle. When the kayak moves, it actually gives the angler an opportunity to finesses the fish better on light tackle. If this isn't on your bucket list, add it there - Let Phatfish Kayak Charters guide you into your first Tarpon from a Kayak in Tampa!
